Central Bank and gov’t will pursue initiated reforms: BoA’s Sejko to Civici’s Argument
After the results of the election were announced and the Socialist Party turned out to be the winner of the race, the Governor of the Bank of Albania Gent Sejko has reiterated in an interview with SCAN TV’s Argument, hosted by journalist Enio Civici, the necessity of the continuation of structural reforms.
“We have pursued a reform plan with Prime Minister Rama, whom I take the opportunity of this interview to congratulate him on his victory. A series of reforms were pursued, and, of course, the economic growth that we’ve had has not fallen from heaven, but was a result of these reforms, was a result of external factors, mainly a result of the reforms,” Sejko said.
“The latest election result is a further security for the continuation of these reforms. These reforms will have to continue. Often times the Bank of Albania, the Supervisory Board of the Bank of Albania and I, on behalf of the Supervisory Board, have called for the continuation of structural reforms. Structural reforms involve a wide range of stakeholders. Government has a key role, but all the other factors, such as the legal system, the financial system, the government and parliament have a role in the performance of structural reforms,” Sejko stated.
While congratulating PM Edi Rama for his election victory, Sejko praised the reforms undertaken in the last four-year mandate to boost the economy and welfare, and expressed the readiness of the Bank of Albania to implement with determination the objectives of financial stability and to strengthen the country’s development.
“The latest result makes us further confident that structural reforms will continue. Economic growth and performance will always go further, so we are confident that the continuation of structural reforms will be in the right direction and will mark a positive performance, we can even predict that there will be an acceleration in the growth rates,” Sejko said.
